The Russian President, Vladimir Putin, has decided that the war in neighboring Ukraine will become a global conflict, carrying out the deployment of tactical nuclear weapons on the territory of Belarus, a country that has shown unwavering loyalty to the regime of Moscow from the kremlin for his unexpected “special operation” to begin. The Russian leader, who did not count on the avalanche of aid offered to Kyiv in the military field, has always denounced the globalization of war in Ukraine after the arrival of weapons, tanks and military equipment from all countries of West.
Putin stated during the same speech, which caught his citizens by surprise, that the Russian military industry is now more powerful, already producing three times more ammunition than before, while The US produces about 15,000 projectiles a year.an unattainable figure for other Western powers, and next year 42,000, when Ukrainian troops spend daily 5,000 shells.
In addition, the Russian president announced that his country will begin manufacture and modernize more than 1,600 tankswhen the “arsonists”, referring to Western countries, will supply Kyiv with “420 or 440 tanks.” «The total volume of tanks in the Russian army will be three times greater than the number of tanks in the Ukrainian Army. Even more than three times,” said the Kremlin chief. It is probable that not even the most pessimistic forecasts of the Russian army could count on such a forceful international reaction to the invasion of Ukraine, started by Russia thirteen months ago.
Surely the straw that broke the camel’s back was put by the United Kingdom, after announcing this week its decision to supplying depleted uranium ammunition to the Ukrainian army. The United Kingdom’s Undersecretary for Defense, Anabell Goldie, responded last Monday on the website of the British Parliament to a question posed by Lord Hylton, Member of the House of Lords, about the possibility of sending these shells to Ukraine, informing that “in addition to sending a squadron of Challenger 2 tanks to Ukraine, we will supply shells with depleted uranium.”
With this statement, Goldie justified his government’s decision by assuring that only with this new material would the Ukrainians be able to demolish Russian tanks and tanks. The controversy was served, making the springs of Russian diplomacy jump. From Moscow they denounced that depleted uranium has a nuclear component, keeping the letter to continue the escalation by raising it one more level.
In London they have not understood the Russian criticism and have accused the Russian regime of “misinforming”. SAccording to the British Defense Ministry itself, depleted uranium has been used “in its armor-piercing projectiles for decades.”being “a standard component that has nothing to do with nuclear weapons or capabilities.”
Vladimir Putin, who appeared yesterday on Russian public television, was forceful justifying the Russian nuclear deployment outside its borders. “There is nothing extraordinary here. First of all, The US has been doing this for decades. It placed its tactical nuclear weapons on the territory of its allied countries, the NATO countries, in Europe a long time ago. If memory serves, in six countries: Germany, Turkey, Holland, Belgium, Italy and Greece». For the Russian president, this new agreement does not violate Russia’s obligations on nuclear non-proliferation, while he reported on the new plan that, if there are no setbacks, will begin on April 3, with the instruction of Belarusian military personnel.
When will the missile silo be ready?
The construction of the silo that will house the feared nuclear missiles will be completed on July 1giving the starting signal to the installation of the same, which would immediately be ready to be used, adding to all those that Russia has within its borders and controlled by the famous red button to which the Russian president has access.
Putin recalled that sending nuclear weapons to Belarus is something that he had already discussed with the president of that country, Aleksander Lukashenko, who had personally requested the deployment of such weapons on its territory. Precisely, Russia had already sent Iskander tactical missiles to that former Soviet republic, capable of carrying nuclear charges. With this announcement, the Russian president goes one step further in his threats to the West, trying to match up with what he considers his greatest enemy today, the United States.
The largest country in the world has changed the script of its operation knowing that the enemy is now not only this former republic of the USSR, but all the countries that support it militarily.
